Lorenzen limps away from practice, status unclear

Just left the comforts of the Shenkman Center, where UConn finished practice No. 11 of 15 on the spring. Here's the scoop...

Tyler Lorenzen left practice with about 15 minutes remaining, walking gingerly with team trainers. It didn't appear to be a devastating injury. Perhaps a sprained ankle. Could have been a knee. Lorenzen was walking with only a minor limp. Even Randy Edsall, right after practice, hadn't been informed what the injury was and that's probably a good sign. He admitted if it was serious, someone would have come back out and let him know before practice was over. "I would hope I wouldn't be the last guy to know (if it was serious)," Edsall said. The coach was expecting a full report during dinner from head trainer Bob Howard.

"I just saw him limp off," Edsall said. "Its hard for me to say, but it'll probably be a low ankle or a high ankle sprain. The good thing was he walked off. They took him off and put him right into the pools, which is a blessing. It was just a freak thing. The intensity was up today, it wasn't supposed to be but they got a little carried away. Danny (Lansanah) or someone pushed him and he rolled it a little. I don't think it's serious. If we get him back out here the last 3 or 4 practices that's great. If he can't, he'll be back ready to go in August."

I'll post a full practice recap later....
